that much less expensive light meters are
available from ...

Light meters are not all that expensive and I cannot imagine trying to
teach or do research in plant biology without one.  A Licor setup runs
about $750 (other companies might offer similar units), they are very easy
to use, and, short of running them over with a truck, should last for
years.  Of course, just having a light meter doesn't make me a light expert
(there are a lot of incorrect ways to measure and express irradiance) but
it is a great instrument to have around the lab.

I have no financial or other interest in Licor.
